News posted 21st September, 2007 by Rikus  
Just wanted to let everyone know about a new book Called: Awesome Game Creation this 3rd Edition written by Jason Darby. Jason has been succesful in writing this very well written book on game creation. The book now has its very own website so to be sure to have a look at it.

Comments from the author: There are thousands of more game players today than there were in 2000 and many of these players want to know how to make their own games. Most of these people are not programmers, however, so they need a non-programming why to learn and that's why this book works so well! Awesome Game Creation: No Programming Required, Third Edition teaches game enthusiasts and aspiring developers how to create your own computer games without programming skills. You'll learn how to make and modify your own interactive 2D and 3D computer games. And, you'll learn how to use a variety of development tools, including The Games Factory 2 (latest version), GameMaker, and FPS Creator (new to this edition). This is a great way to learn the basics of game design and creation without having to learn how to program!!

yeah personally I think it's some easy money at the ignorant's expense.
why would anyone pay 45$ for something that teach us how to use FPS creator, Game Maker and TGF 2 ?
I mean if you want to make games, you would stick with one of those and learning making with FPS creator ? meh it's just drag n drop what can you learn ? the same goes for TGF2 and GM, there's tons of quality tutorials on the internet, no need to spend money on that book.

I found out about TGF when I bought the first edition of this book. I found the book really useful, especially with all the extra example files it came with.

Books like this are great for people just starting out in game creation. I don't really understand what all the nagativity is about. Might be a touch pricy, but I would have payed 50 beans back when I was starting out for some solid creation advice.

I have a few great books for game development but I forgot their names and I'm too lazy to search for the links. A bit expensive, but well worth the price.

Personally, I wouldn't buy this book simply for the staggering number of grammatical errors on the website itself. If that's any indication of the quality, then steer clear.
